BabyCenter has revealed the most popular baby names of 2011. I am not surprised by the names–and even had a relative with a new baby this year name her baby Chloe, which made the list this year. Here is the list of the most popular baby names of 2011:
Out of curiosity, I went ahead and took those names and ran them through some checks over at Moniker to see which of these names are taken, and which of these domain names are still available for “hand registration”, meaning that anyone can go register the domain name (as long as you play by the rules of the particular registrar). Some ccTLDs (Country Code Top Level Domains) have requirements that you must live in the country, or have a business address in the country, etc. etc., so you will need to check the requirements. But in any case, I am actually surprised that these first names, which are now the most popular baby names of 2011, are still available for registration.
There are a few of the ccTLDs that I personally like, especially if you’re in Los Angeles or in Louisiania (e.g., Aiden.LA is available), and if your baby is going to be a doctor then it might be cool to have Aiden.MD as their website’s domain name.
By the way, many new parents are opting to set up a website for their new child, so that they can post photos where friends and family can view them.
So, here is a list of some of the domain names that are available as of this blog post:
I have compiled a list, which is quite lengthy, and included the prices where I had that data. You can view or download the full list here.
